Blurb: Unrequited love really sucked sometimes, especially when you’re stuck with them for
days.

Danny Newell has loved Locke for six years. Every time they have to work together that love grows just a little bit more desperate. Of course, it would be easier if Locke gave him the time of day. When Danny gets a phone call late at night and goes out on a mission by himself, the last person he expects to go after him is Locke. Being stuck on a mission with a man who despises him is not his favorite thing, to say the least.

Review: Each book in the Lakehouse Security collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

Danny has been in love with Locke for over six years, but Locke didn’t return that love. Or so that is the way he thought. So when one of the guys they had saved, called them for help Danny was going to save the kid. The problem was Danny was not field trained, he was the computer expert. So to his surprise and pain, it was Locke that came to help him.

Locke wanted Danny but he was scared to death. Then when Danny went to help the kid, he knew he needed help. Danny would get his ass killed if he wasn’t careful and Locke wanted to be the one to help him and keep him safe. He was falling in love with the man, and knew once he did there was no going back.

This book gave me everything I could ask for in a story and so much more. I just wished that there were more to read, I absolutely hate having to wait for the next story. I loved this one and cannot wait for the next amazing story. I can honestly tell you that this is going to be one of those types of series. One that I will have to read over and over. I love the way all the feelings they felt was involved in this story.

It was the perfect story for me and I loved it. When Kelley puts out a book I am usually there to eat them up. Trust me it will keep you laughing, crying, loving and having fun.

Hot damn April has written another amazing story. I had not heard of April Kelley till I started reading this series and I was amazed with the stories she comes up with.

The guys at the ranch have so much compassion and love that it makes you wish you were right there with them. I have books that are in my favorite list, and it wasn’t till I actually started reading this series, that I knew I needed to revise that list. Now I have my top five favorite paranormals and my top five contemporaries. This is one of my top five contemporaries.

There is something about this story that had me in tears. The fear that Dakota had felt for over three years makes you wish you were there to rip the man who hurt him apart. Three years ago he had basically a one night stand that turned dangerous. He had a stalker. Running has left him without a home and friends. He had to leave his family behind to stay alive. Now he has found a home that he wants to keep but fear keeps him from the man that he wants. Then he realizes that without Jackson, he was just an empty shell.

Jackson had always had one night stands, never settling with just one person. That stopped when Dakota came to work on the farm. He wanted him, but for some reason the man kept his distance from Jackson. Then the truth came out, and Jackson wants blood. He will do everything to keep his man safe.

It was the perfect story for me and I loved it. When Kelley puts out a book I am usually there to eat them up. Trust me it will keep you laughing, crying, loving and having fun.

Review: Each book in the Wayne County Wolves collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

The very first book in this series was the first book that I had read by this amazing author. I was impressed then and I am still impressed. There is just something about her characters, story and the way they mix with each other. The characters are beautifully written with big hearts, however if you cross them, they have no problem putting you down. They will protect their family and friends with their entire lives.

Burt was a great friend, even though his life was a bit hard with his family. His father was an ass, and he was hurt for it. He was a great friend to the alpha and many of the others, so when he went feral they were shocked. Throughout it, almost ferals are killed or at least imprisoned, but Chris knew he had to find a way around it. So he brought in Cree.

The thing with Cree is that he has the hots for Burt.
Cree has always been a whisperer and knew he could help Burt. He just hadn’t expected to fall for the guy. In his life he was told he could never mate, but with Burt’s help he finds out that not everything is the way it should be.

This is a very fast paced story. The only thing I find repetitive is the war with Rand. It just gets to be a bit old although the ending is a bit different. Even with that, the story was pretty much what I wanted. I was amazed with this story and look forward to reading more by Stephani. It has a touch of humor in a story that has a serious tone to it.

I would definitely recommend this book and the ones before it. It was amazing and I had so much fun reading it.

Still, he has no way to get away from Stan, his sister’s mate, or at least that’s what he thinks. Kameron, just like almost every other member of the pack, has known something was wrong with Zach for months, but as the Alpha, he didn’t have the possibility to do much about it while he had other and more pressing emergencies on his hands.

Now that everything seems to be fine finally or as close to it as it can be, he finally looks for Zach, and what he finds nearly crushes him. Even after Kameron rescues Zach and his sister from months of abuse, old and new problems rise on the horizon, problems that will put a  strain on their budding relationship.

Will it be strong enough to resist even Kameron’s bad faith, or will the newly formed couple crumble under the pressure?

I came across Catherine a few months ago and she has already established a spot in my favorite authors list. There is just something about her characters, story and the way they mix with each other. With this series I would suggest reading Whitedell Pride series book one first. You start there and then you will start seeing how all the characters cross over. I can’t stand to start a series and then it ends after a while. I want them to continue and it drives me nuts when they don’t. I am a big fan of these guys.

Zach knew when he was fourteen that Kameron was his mate. The problem was that in their pack it was not right for men to be together. Then his sister mated with one of the inner circle. Turns out that it was a bad idea and pretty much not hers. When she became pregnant Stan used his fears to control him. He feared for his sister’s safety and his mates. So he hid his scent and lived with the pain.

Kameron knew something was up, but he also remembered that Zach had left him. He had wanted to make him his mate even though they were not mated, but it isn’t until he saves Zach that the truth comes out. Things are about to get dicey and he needs to get over his fears of Zach taking off. The problem is there is still danger out there and they needed to keep everyone safe.

I would definitely recommend reading this book. Trust me it will keep you laughing, crying, loving and having fun.

Review: This is book two in the Moonwar series. Continuing the cataclysmic events at the end of the first book Will, Ethan and others from the pub explore the devastation in search for survivors. What they find is so much worse.

I wish this was a longer story as I like the way things are going with Will and Ethan as well as the plot of the story. The aliens who have attacked earth seem cruel and unkind. The so-called authority now in place leaves a lot to be desired. The general seems like an ass to me that only cared about throwing his authority around.

Hot sex, as well as intense scenes at times, make a good read.

Blurb: Will the bond of blood outweigh the passions of the heart?
While sketching the Temple of Dendur, graduate student Carter Denwright meets—and is seduced by—a powerful vampire by the name of Alder. Though they were once kept secret from the human world, now everyone knows of their existence. Blinded by mistaken feelings for Alder, Carter allows himself to be drawn into his life. Too late, he realizes two things: one, Alder is vicious and cruel, and two, Carter’s true love is Alder’s brother, Freyr.

The attraction between Carter and Freyr is strong, but they must fight this feeling or face the wrath of Alder. Despite their best efforts, Alder discovers the truth, and punishes Carter, hiding him from Freyr in a cruel game of cat and mouse.

Freyr is not as strong as his brother, but he vows that he will find Carter again and will stop at nothing to get him back. Carter, caught in Alder’s cruel grip, commits an act of desperation that will change all their lives forever. The question is: can Freyr find Carter, and is the bond between him and Carter enough to break Alder’s hold and spoil his plans to ruin them both?

Review: An awesome story that portrays the lives of two vampire brothers Alder and Freyr. Both different as night and day and the human caught between them, Carter. Alder was very controlling and evil in my opinion. The thing this man put human through was horrifying. I wanted to seriously hurt him for all the pain he caused Carter. His evil plans and the revelation of things past that he had a hand in left me stunned speechless.

Freyr was the complete opposite of his brother. Sweet at times and kind. When he sees Carter he knows he wants him. I found it so sweet that Freyr tried his best to make Carter happy no matter the cost. He was truly a knight in shining armor when Carter needed him the most at times.

The rest of Freyr’s crew were strong and sure of themselves yet funny in a way I didn’t expect. There were some amusing scenes that had me laughing. There was such a unique blend of cultures in the story that I was amazed. I hope to see more of them in future books with a little more detail about each of them.

Amazing and beautiful details of the artifacts and countryside in Germany as well as the castle itself made me feel like I was actually there seeing it with my own eyes. The artifacts and pieces that Freyr had accumulated over his long life amazed me. I loved the details surrounding some of them even though some of the artifacts Alder had were macabre in there display I still enjoyed reading about them.

This book is the perfect blend of drama, action, adventure, mystery and love. It was well written and immediately grabs your attention from the start drawing you into the story until you have to finish it to find out what happens. I highly recommend this fantastic book it is a must read for everyone. I am looking forward to what other stunning story the author has in store for the next book.

Fantastic read with some hot sex to spice things up that set the pages on fire. I absolutely loved this book.

Blurb: Jackal shifter Jake has always had an affinity for the sciences, but Trevor’s toxic mixture is way beyond anything he’s had to deal with in the past. How can just one jackal find the answer? Stranger things had happened…a lone jackal living in a coven of vampires, for one.

After a long struggle, Jake has finally done it—he’s figured out the solution to the blood poisoning and the drugging smoke Trevor used to dose both sides of the Blood Moon Pack Alliance. Excited, he calls the three mated pairs he knows who will appreciate the find most, starting with the two vampire elders that took him in when he was lost and gave him a home.

But things aren’t always rosy. Just because others are getting their happy endings—or beginnings—doesn’t mean he is any closer to his own. In fact, he may be further away than ever before.

On the other hand, Elders Lavi and Van take great advantage of the new cure and take Jacko on a flight to remember, while Ashlock and Zeke get creative in a tattoo studio. Remy and Skylar take a very expensive shopping trip, and Micah and Rylan deal with the repercussions of the intense power spike from the alpha pair completing the bond.

Review: Each book in the Blood Moon Pack Alliance collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. There is nothing better than a good paranormal romance with two gorgeous men involved.

Jake is a pretty damn good scientist and has finally figured out how to fix the poison that has made it hard for the guys to mate. He is a bit scared of things from the way I read it but he has a great big heart. He knows who his mate is, but to bad his mate is an ass. The good news he has figured out how to help his friends with their problems.

This was the strangest book in this series. I mean other than the fact that Jake helped his friends, you get just a few pages of his own story. I am glad to hear about the others but not enough to like the story better. I was a bit disappointed in this book. It felt like instead of the series moving on, it went back a step. I can’t wait to see if the next book gives me what I want.

Blurb: Out of the Cage: Learning from your past makes for a better future.

Cayden Rochette works as a negotiator for the Stone Ridge wolf pack. For decades he has worked behind the scenes with his alpha to secure peace for the pack’s future, which often leads to long stretches away from home. After one such assignment, he discovers a cat shifter staying in his house as his brothers’ guest. One sniff is all it takes to realize the small feline is his mate.

Still, the Andean mountain cat is a shy shifter recently rescued from years of torture at the hands of scientists. The cat hasn’t even shifted, yet, even after staying with the wolves for weeks. With a little help from the mate-pull, Cayden earns the cat’s curiosity—if not his trust—enough for him to shift, anyway. That opens up a whole new world of questions. Ajax grew up away from shifters and knows little of their ways.

Can Cayden convince the solitary shifter of the benefits of staying with him? –

Review: Each book in the Wolves of Stone Ridge collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. There is nothing better than a good paranormal romance with two gorgeous men involved. There is something about the way that Charlie tells a story that will not only draw you in and keep your attention the whole time but it will have you in tears at some part.

Charlie has always been one of my favorite authors for a quite a while now that she is one of those types that would be instant buy without even reading the blurb. There is just something about her characters, story and the way they mix with each other. With these stories it gives you a mate that has at some point been hurt. The alpha of the pair feels so much for his mate, he will do everything to protect his mate and keep him safe.

Cayden is the smallest of his brothers yet he is the more dominate of the three. He is strong in body and mind. After a long times away from home, he is just happy to be home. Then he finds that they have taken in a strange shifter, then to top it off it is his mate.

Ajax is a very cute little cat shifter. I haven’t even really heard of these types of cats but took one look at the cover and yeah he is adorable. He is an Andean mountain cat, who has had his life uprooted and screwed around. He had lost his mother at a young age, then captured by the scientist. Now free, he is waiting for the other shoe to drop. He just had not expected the sexy wolf that he is attracted to.

Blurb: Just a little love bite: When the monster comes out of the dark…sometimes he eats you up in every way you love.

Peter has lived with vampires for almost two decades, ever since his own parents were killed in a house fire, and he considers himself pretty knowledgeable about paranormals. Stopping for a cup of coffee in a diner, Peter finds himself turned on by the steady stare of a big Italian.

When he makes a pit-stop at the diner’s bathroom, he doesn’t expect a hook-up. That’s exactly what Peter gets…and he also learns he doesn’t know as much about paranormals as he thinks he does. His new lover, Balthazar, is a demon who is coming up on his one thousandth birthday. He kidnaps Peter, claiming him as his amina, his soul, a reward from the Gods for doing his job well for a thousand years.

Except, Balthazar’s job is sucking out the souls of the living and delivering them to Death. If Peter can get past the stigma of being bonded with a soulless demon, can Balthazar keep him safe from whoever is sending minions hell-bent on keeping them apart—not to mention Peter’s meddling vampire friends—long enough for their bond to seal?

Review: This is book five in the series A Loving Nip. This book added a different paranormal to the vampire’s series, a demon named Balthazar who claims Peter, a human, is his amina. I took that to mean amina is something similar to the term soul-mate or beloved. These two definitely did not have an easy time of getting to know one other as other demons came after them to prevent the bonding. As well as the vampires wanting to protect Peter.

I was glad to see Kontra and some of the others from A Paranormal’s Love/Kontra’s Menagerie in this book as well. It seemed there were a lot of misunderstandings about demons in general. All that was cleared up with the help of Draven. The fighting scenes were intense, I really felt for Balthazar when he felt he had no other choice but to send Peter away to protect him. It was intriguing about the way a demon bonded. Not to mention who they worked for was a shock.

Balthazar’s job had me raising my eyebrows but was pleasantly surprised at the way he went about his job. He didn’t seem so scary once I learned more about him. I loved the way he wanted to protect Peter by any means necessary. Powerful, emotional, and riveting this book had me on the edge of my seat as each scene unfolded awaiting the outcome. Looking forward to reading more in the series.

Absolutely loved it and highly recommend it to all paranormal readers.
